Stephen Piscotty might be one of the unluckiest guys in the MLB. The poor dude was hit three times in the fifth inning. By the end of it he must've been unimaginably fed up.
Former Major League Baseball star Aubrey Huff took a swing at the gaming community last weekend, implying in a tweet that 'grown ass men' who play video games don't get laid. Who knows, maybe his retired buddies think archaic stereotypes are funny, but Twitter did not let this one slide. What ensued was a barrage of comebacks, quips, and spicy roasts in one endless thread. We've collected some of the funniest replies to Aubrey's foul for your amusement.
Looks like you struck-out this time, Aubrey.

What's the douchenozzle A-Rod contemplating in this pic? His own profoundly overdeveloped vanity? Maybe he's trying to figure out where it all went wrong. Perhaps sometime when he teed himself up for a good 'ol fashioned meme-inspired whipping. The guy is almost too easy to make fun of at this point in the game, and the fact his self-awareness would seem to be at an all time low, promises the likely prospect we'll be seeing more of these gems pop up. One can hope.
Twitter user @cpatterson_7 filmed his buddy trying out a speed pitch challenge at a Rockies game, and after the video went viral on Twitter he ended up signing an official contract with the Oakland A's! Talk about a true fairytale. We wish this guy nothing but luck in his spontaneous MLB career.
Jose Canseco's out on Twitter looking like a curveball-throwing pitcher these days, man. I don't know what's going on in his dugout, but the retired MLB baseball player looks like swapped his gatorade, for something of a more disorienting, chemically-infused persuasion. But hey. That's just what it looks like. Maybe Canseco's having a hell of a fun time messing around with fans and followers, by tweeting out the most unexpected kind of sh*t possible. Just cause he can. Now, read up on how you can live 30 years long, according to, Jose Canseco.
File under headlines we never thought we'd write! Twitter user Shanna Shi wowed baseball and Pokémon fans alike when she started this viral twitter thread comparing baseball players hair to Pokémon. The thread became so popular that Shanna has already tweeted 60+ comparisons - and attracted the attention of the athletes themselves. MLB players Rhys Hoskins and Trevor Williams both begged for their Shanna-approved doppelgangers, and she gladly complied. Given that there are over 800 Pokémon in that adorable universe, we sure hope there are more tweets on their way. We've posted the bangers but you can see more here.
